Advice & Tips:
No problem with this medication, it worked great on breakthrough pain. My only concern was that I would develop a high tolerance for it and if I was ever seriously injured or became chronically ill, then it would not be affective. I also know now that I was not educated properly by my PCP at the time. I was given the false pretense that this medication would eliminate my pain 100%. After I struggled for over a year with managing my pain (and not taking medication properly because of being uneducated) I did the research on my conditions and pain medications and learned that you are always going to feel up to 30% of pain and the goal should be to lower the pain level as much as possible with medications and alternative methods like a heating pad for example.
